My research interests are in the functional/ecological morphology, aerodynamics, and evolution of vertebrate flight, from hummingbirds to seabirds. I also participate in studies of seabird mortality from oil spills.
I teach Vertebrate Physiology (Z430, Z431, Z432), Comparative Anatomy (Z422/522) and, some day soon, an Honors course in Zoology (Monster Biology*).
